Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. I enjoy traveling and look forward to visiting cemeteries in Canada and the U.S.

It's very rewarding to fulfill photo requests, and I'm always interested in knowing where other Find A Grave members are from and a little bit about them.

My public name comes from the small Saskatchewan town where I grew up as the eldest child in the Elliott household. Maternal family names include
Anderson and Riddell. My husband's family are Deis from the Vibank area and Liutvinskas from Edenwold.

I've been interested in photography since I was a child. Photographing headstones and plaques can sometimes present challenges in making sure they can be read. My Photoshop skills have been handy for cropping, optimizing file sizes, lightening images for clarity. My checklist for cemetery visits grows longer, but a brush is the biggest essential (next to a camera, which is always in my bag).

I am happy to transfer memorial pages to relatives.

The Byrd Graves in Kenaston
Thank you so much for adding those pictures of their gravestones! There wasn't much to them, but it's a connection to some ancestors. Do you know if there is any additional info on Jeanette or Richard in the Cemetary Records? (or is there someone I can contact for that?)

Thank you again!
